What can you claim back charges for?
Anything they are not supposed to charge you for
Cloth nappies and baby clothes are zero VAT rated in the UK so therefore there shouldn't be any import VAT payable, only import duty if the value of the parcel is over £135 (which this one clearly wasn't
) . Unfortunately there are some people at customs and excise that put the wrong code on the parcel so you get charged.
It has only happened to me once before and considering I buy a rather large quantity of things from outside the EU I think thats pretty good.
